Carne Asada Tacos – Guilt Free


Taco 5

These carne asada tacos are guilt free! They feature a small portion of meat, and NO corn tortilla! I substitute the tortilla with a piece of romaine lettuce. It’s the perfect alternative to tortillas in this recipe. Carne aside is delicious. I don’t eat a lot of red meat, but when I do I like to grill it, or simply cook it and toss it into some lettuce and just dig in!

First I marinated my skirt steak! I tossed it into a bowl with 1/2 lime – juiced, 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon onion powder, salt and pepper to taste, olive oil, and a little smoked paprika.

I let that sit while I prepped the rest. I cooked down 1/4 of a red onion and about 5 mushrooms in a pan until they were cooked well. I set those aside as a topping! I also turned half of an avocado into my favorite guacamole recipe. I also cut up some tomato, red onion and cilantro…and made a little salsa by mixing it with vinegar!

I cut my romaine lettuce into a few pieces to use as “taco shells” for the cooked carne asada! Cook the carne aside for about 4 minutes each side and slice across the grain. After eating these I realized I should’ve cut the meat into cubes, so do that for ease of eating!

I placed my “taco shells” into little ramekins and started stacking all of my ingredients!

I realized it was cute for pictures, but not really convenient for eating, so I swapped them out for a regular old plate.

Pick that baby up and enjoy your carne aside taco even more because you still feel light and guilt free after you’re done!

You can also use this lettuce in place of any taco shell; whether you’re having chicken tacos, carnitas, or veggie…these lettuce wraps will make your next taco Tuesday extra healthy and extra tasty!
